Kirby's Dream Land 3 Reclassified by ESRB
Posted by Damien McFerran
After the somewhat dismal pair of US Virtual Console releases this week we thought you could all do with some slightly more joyous news. Kirby’s Dream Land 3 has been re-classified by the ESRB!
For those of you that don't know, ESRB stands for Entertainment Software Rating Board. These guys rate all of the software that is released in the US and their hard word ensures that little kiddies don't get to play games that feature lots of guns, gore and naked ladies. They also prove rather handy when it comes to predicting which games will be released on the Virtual Console!
The game was originally rated some time ago but then slipped off the ESRB site for reasons unknown. It’s now back, and this mysterious reinstatement gives hope for other games that have slipped off the radar, like Zombies Ate My Neighbours, Duck Hunt and (of course) Super Mario RPG. All of these titles have been rated previously and then been removed with no explanation.
All of Kirby’s adventures are worth checking out and Dream Land 3 is no exception. Hopefully this means Nintendo is gearing up to give us some SNES goodness over the next few weeks!
